UK court sentences three for running terror websites

[JURIST] A Court in London sentenced Younis Tsouli [Wikipedia profile] and two accomplices to prison Thursday for collaborating on websites that advocated terrorism. Tsouli, along with Tariq al-Daourm and Waseem Mughal, used the sites to promote terrorist actions and distribute information on how to construct bombs and poisons. Tsouli, who labeled himself "the jihadist James Bond," received a sentence of ten years, while Al-Daour and Mughal received sentences of six and one half years and seven and one half years respectfully.

The websites also contained information about a conversation in which Muslim doctors discussed using car bombs against the US [PTI report]. The three were arrested in 2005 [BBC report] under the UK Terrorism Act after police found information on how to make car bombs and a terrorist-training video in their homes. AP has more.
